Artificial intelligence features

Causation-based AI gets to the root cause fast

The Dynatrace real-time analytics and AI engine automatically detects performance and availability issues and pinpoints their root causes. Resolve application problems before your customers are impacted.

AI for today’s hyper-complex apps

The traditional monitoring approach of watching dashboards, responding to alerts, and manually analyzing data sets doesn’t work anymore. Today’s hyper-dynamic, highly distributed application environments have gotten too complex and move too fast. The volume, velocity, and variety of information is simply more than humans are able to keep up with using traditional tools.

But artificial intelligence can absorb terabytes of data and make sense of it instantaneously. AI automates all the "heavy lifting"—all the discovery and analysis that take teams of experts hours or days, AI does in milliseconds—to proactively identify problems and pinpoint the underlying root cause.

Only AI can monitor and manage the complexity and speed of today's application environments

The Dynatrace AI difference

Only Dynatrace has the patented technologies to eneable AI-powered moniitoring.

The best data

AI is only as good as the data that feeds it. Dynatrace starts with a view of the entire digital ecosystem in high fidelity – every transaction from every user – delivered by our full stack, single agent. But we go beyond that to incorporate third-party data including time-series, events, unstructured data, relational data, and more.

Dynatrace was built with the world’s largest applications in mind and scales to any size.

In context

Because Dynatrace sees relationships and dependencies in real-time, our AI engine has the context it needs to tell you not only what happened, but why it happened. While other solutions can only correlate disconnected data, Dynatrace automatically detects virtual and physical relationships and changes. This allows us to go beyond correlation and give you true causation.

Dynatrace pinpoints the root causes of performance issues automatically

Purpose-built, causation-based algorithms

The Dynatrace deterministic, causation-based AI engine is built into the fabric of the platform, not bolted on as an afterthought. We examine metrics, both from the Dynatrace OneAgent and third-party tools, along with anomalies, dependencies, event sequences, natural events like code deploys, and even expert knowledge to find the true root cause of problems.

“After deploying a new release, we spent over 30 hours trying to find a performance problem. With Dynatrace, finding a similar problem would take us only minutes.”
Eugenia Gillan, VP Engineering at ZoomInfo

Analyze events from external sources

IT teams are overwhelmed with events from DevOps and other tools. Now, the Dynatrace AI engine can consume and interpret these events in context of the application and transactions. Dynatrace is the only valid connector between these distributed events, thanks to our real-time relationship and dependency mapping. This allows you to go beyond just seeing what happened to seeing why something happened, for example identifying root causes from external or natural, human-related events.

In addition:

  • Dynatrace detects anomalies from custom metrics using change point detection – no need to define baselines or thresholds.
  • The Dynatrace AI engine points out normal behavior to eliminate possible root causes and allow you to focus on what really matters.
  • Dynatrace also supports problem commenting with intelligent search and analysis, turning your system into a true knowledgebase to get relevant information faster.
